Accused Craigslist killer Philip Markoff took his own life Sunday and has learned that before his suicide, he wrote his ex-fiancee’s name on the wall of his prison cell in blood.

In a disturbing discovery, law enforcement officials associated with the case say Markoff wrote the name “Megan” and the word “pocket” on his Boston jail wall.

Markoff was engaged to Megan McAllister and the two were set to marry in August 2009 before he was fingered in a string of crimes stemming from Craigslist.
